Lost City - Meebox May '17 Nail Art + Review

Hey everyone! It's been a while since I did a review of Meebox thanks to my unscheduled break, so I actually have two different boxes to show you at the moment, the first of which is the 'Lost City' Meebox* from last month. When this landed on my doorstep I was a bit stumped on what to create with the contents of the box, which were:

Annika - Blue Lagoon
Cuccio - Pier Pressure
Ruby Wing - Hello Sailor
NCLA - Take It Off Soy Remover Sheets
House of Wonderland Decals (exclusive to Meebox)

Worth more than £40 in value (despite the box only costing £20 a month, or £18 if you pay for 3 months), they're definitely worth trying out if you haven't already. All these brands were completely new to me, and pushed me to create something I wouldn't usually do.

Anyway, I was struggling to come up with a design so I decided to completely wing it. I've never used water decals before so I started with those on top of the Cuccio polish, and I accented with Ruby Wing - Hello Sailor over Pier Pressure. Then I decided to play around with striping tape, and by the end of it I really loved the result, and I hope you do too!

I started with 2 coats of Cuccio - Pier Pressure, then I added a coat of Ruby Wings - Hello Sailor to my accent nails. 

I then added the water decal to my middle finger, and I was quite impressed with myself for a first attempt!

Then I applied striping tape to my thumb and ring finger and used Ruby Wings + Annika - Blue Lagoon for the design. I used the brush from the Ruby Wings bottle to paint it straight on, and then I used a striping brush to add the blue triangles before removing the tape. 

I also decided my middle finger looked a bit plain so added further triangles to that. Finished with a coat of Seche Vite (and then removed after with the NCLA sheets).

What do you think? Have you tried Meebox yet?

  1. Alice, you totally nailed the theme and I love your mani, it's def the best I've seen using the contents of this box. I wasn't a fan of the colours, but after seeing your mani, I've actually changed my mind, they all go together so well.
